Springing into Autumn........

Beautiful day, felt more like Spring, and a leisurely walk/bike around the old Parish, so leisurely in fact I forgot I was bird watching and spent quite a bit of time taking photographs, chatting to people and chilling out watching the world go by. The birds I did manage to take notice of were, Green Sandpiper on the Wildfowlers’ Pool. At least 9 Little Egrets, plenty of Curlew, and a Peregrine spooked hundreds of Lapwing on the far shore. Various Skylark flying over, approx 9, and at least the same amount of Wheatear. A raven was on the marsh. The Canada and Greylag were close to the bank thanks to the high tide. Flushed a couple of Snipe on the shoreline, and also came across a very rotten dead Buzzard, also a living one soaring way above. A quick look at the sewage works produced about a dozen Pied Wagtails.
